Examines Mood Disorders
The February event in the Johns Hopkins University Press Neighborhood Author Series will feature a discussion of mood disorders by Johns Hopkins psychiatrist Francis Mark Mondimore.
Mondimore is the author of Depression: The Mood Disease; Bipolar Disorder: A Guide for Patients and Families; and Adolescent Depression: A Guide for Parents.
The lecture takes place Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in in the Peabody Room at the Episcopal Diocesan Center on the corner of North Charles Street and University Parkway. Parking is available. It is one of a series of monthly lectures featuring Baltimore-based writers of books published by the Johns Hopkins University Press.
Mondimore will discuss topics such as when moodiness indicates a more serous medical condition; how to recognize depression and bipolar disorder in your loved one (or yourself); the different types of depression; the causes, symptoms, and treatment options; and how to find a good treatment team, deal with health insurance, and cope with emergency hospitalizations.
The Neighborhood Author Series is organized by Johns Hopkins University's Office of Community Affairs and the Johns Hopkins University Press, America's oldest university press and the area's leading publisher of books about the history, people, and environment of Maryland and the Chesapeake region.
